Description of Ethics Officer Certification Program (EOCP)

The Corporate Governance Code of Kenya, the King III report on Governance in South Africa, the UK Bribery Act and others, specifically mentions that good corporate governance is grounded in ethics and therefore, organizations should integrate ethics and implement an ethics and corruption prevention management plan. But what does this mean? How is ethics managed in an organization? What is ethics? How do you write effective ethics policies? This course answers these questions and many more and is therefore not about corporate governance as such, but about managing ethics and corruption prevention in organizations within a corporate governance framework.

This course will provide participants with practical, skills-based knowledge to manage ethics in an organization. This will enable them to avoid the pitfalls and reputational damage associated with unethical conduct. In addition, it will also assist them in unlocking the ethical potential of their workplaces

The first Ethics Officer Certification Programme was presented in 2004 in South Africa and in 2010 in Kenya. Currently, there are over 400 individuals who have attended the course, both from the public and the private sector, with currently 151 certified ethics officers, 17 of them being Kenyans. The course was introduced in East Africa by Ethics Institute of East Africa – EthicEA in 2010; a joint venture with Ethics Institute of South Africa.

The program enables trainees to;

  1. Understand the concepts of ethics;
  2. Develop effective ethics and corruption prevention structures, processes and policies;
  3. Communicate and interpret organizational ethical standards within the organizations;
  4. Build and sustain an ethical culture in organizations;
  5. Manage ethics within organizations;
  6. Compile ethics and compliance data;
  7. Support the ethical and compliance obligations of executives and the board of directors;
  8. Train other staff on ethical matters; and
  9. Resolve ethical problems and make ethical decisions.
